  Madrat 14:36 20 Jul 04

I hav stopped a PC from booting because when I tried to update the bios I must have flashed the wrong one. (wont try that again)

Does anyone know where I can get the chip replased or reprogramed.

I did this to a K7VZA on xmas day a couple of years ago.I purchased a device called RD-1 BIOS Savior.Once I had reprogrammed it with the correct BIOS,I used it to boot the mobo,flicked a switch on the device and then reflashed the right BIOS to the mobo's chip.These devices come in a range of types,to suit 1M,2M chips,etc.I think it cost me about £30 when I bought it from still have the K7VZA mobo(working)but rarely use the device now,as I have upgraded the mobo several times and my latest mobo has dual BIOS and the device doesn't fit onto it here

What BIOS type award Ami?

Some BIOS flash progs allow you to save original first did you do this?

Is there a jumper on the MOBO for clearing the BIOS?

Remove / disconnect CMOS battery for 10 minutes.
Refit and attemt to reboot (It worked for me although I left it for approx 1 year before having another play with the board during an idle moment).
